Valentine Snow Globes

One of my daughters favorite Chrismas presents this year was a snow globe.  She could sit for an hour and shake it and stare at it.  It was adorable and even her younger brother loved looking at it with her.  So for Valentines Day we created some "shaker's" as my daughter would call them.  

Supplies needed:
Baby Food Jars
Styrofoam ball 
Heart shape (I found these hearts at the dollar store but the black one is just a pipe cleaner that I formed into a heart.  Use what you have.  :) 
Hot Glue Gun
Paint for the lid of the baby food jar

How we did it:
I cut the Styrofoam ball in half.  Then I hot glued it to the cap of the baby food jar.  While I was doing that my daughter painted the top of the lids pink.  Then we placed the heart in the middle of the Styrofoam.  Then my daughter picked glitter out and shook some in the jar and then she helped me put water in.  Screw the lid on tight and have fun shaking and looking at the pretty glitter.  

We are going to print a little heart gift tag and give these as gifts to her Awana teachers... I think they will love them.

Such a cute gift idea to grandparents, teachers, friends, etc. You are so creative!

NEW TIP: Use Glycerin in the water to create a thicker fluid and then the glitter will linger longer before falling.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
